    This in return will increase the thickness of the subchondral bone which forms bone cysts. This large peripheral growths of bone and cartilage called osteophytes, which represent the bones attempt to grow a new articular cartilage. This is the primary starting point of osteoarthritis. In the great majority of instances, osteoarthritis of the limb joint appears insidiously, without apparent initiating cause but as an aging phenomenon, called idiopathic or primary osteoarthritis.
